“This place is amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We have stayed here several times and always have a great experience. The cabins are fully furnished and if it is missing anything you just have to adk Dave the owner and he will supply you with. The rooms are clean and the access to the beach is directly across the street. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend the stay!!

Having spent 4 visits here I am still delighted with the peace and quiet I experience each time I am there. I have always found the cabins to be clean and comfortable. If you want the Hilton you will pay Hilton prices. Birch Bay Get Away does not pretend to be anything other than it is - different sized self-contained cabins, to get away either with friends to socialize around the bbq or with children as the beach is right across the road. Couples would find it a good place to spend a romantic getaway. I go to get away from the Madding Crowd and it never lets me down. The kitchens are well appointed but there are restaurants and stores within walking distance. You rarely hear noise from other cabins and it is really quiet at night. Dave is always cheerfully available should you need anything you don't already have.

Room Tip: They are all pretty quiet I would choose on the basis of how many in the party. Dave can offer sugg...

We stayed 5 nights in one of their cabins. The sheets were clean, but otherwise the bedspread stained in several places, heater rusty and dusty as well as loose pieces hanging. Bathroom had a toilet brush holder that was grey with mold as was the dust pan that sat with broom in the bathroom leaning against the wall. The facet base had mold around the edge and the shower curtain was pink with mold on the bottom 5 to 6 inches high. In the kitchen when I brought out a Teflon fry pan to cook some meat it had dried food all around the inside edge of pan. I took the pan out and showed the manager and he replaced it with a clean pan. The bathroom brush holder I showed the manager and he had someone come in and wash it in the bathroom sink. I asked the room cleaner about the mold on the dust pan with the broom and he took it outside and leaned them both beside the door. The deck had been painted grey, but they painted it with the planters still sitting on the deck so paint only went within 2 inches of planter showing the old painted surface.

We were given the name of our cabin and told to go in and key would be hanging on a hook. There were no names on the cabins just numbers, so was hard to identify and ended up trying several doors. Giving up finding our room we called the manager and he came down and showed us which was our cabin.

The deck was painted grey; but, the flower pots had not been moved so were painted within 2 inches of the pots. Consequently, you could see the old paint around the flower pots.

If we thought we could find something else we would have left, but would have to pay 100% of our reservation because cancellation was within 30 days of arrival.

Do not rent from this company.

Room Tip: I have no suggestions on which cabin to select because ours was dirty enough to indicate that the ot...

My family and I wanted to rent a place in BIrchbay for a few days this summer but everything I found online was WAY over our budget.... That was until I contacted Dave. I sent him an email and he called me back within min. Not only was there a open spot but the price was reasonable and we could bring our dog!! When we arrived it took us a min to figure out the layout and where we needed to go, but ken the propery manager was there to point us in the right direction. We were extremely happy with our accommodations as were our two kids. The grounds were very engelic and both Dave And ken were always around and available if we needed anything. The propery had two bbqs in a common area as well as a Fire pit. Our family loved our time there and even extended our stay by three days. We will absolutely stay here again and again :-)

We checked out after only one night due to the unsanitary and unsafe conditions.

- dirty
- bad odour
- black mould around windows
- old dirty stained ripped furniture like ones you would find at the side of the road
- outlet coming out of walls when unplugging items
- toilet plugged after each use
- cold shower after one minute in the shower
- spiders on bedding
- broken blinds
- broken kitchen faucet
etc etc etc

Poor customer service still charged us for two nights.

overall feel of the accommodations was disgusting. do not stay here, the pictures are deceiving.

We arrived on sat June 29, and were told that someone was occupying the sandalwood cottage!! This was surprising since I booked it months ago!!! We were given the ocean view suite and $100 credit which was good. The suite was pretty bad. It smelled musty, there were syains on the furniture and the suite was in need of some major Reno. It was dirty too. To top it all off no air conditioning, and my son went to look for one of his toys under his bed, and found an old shoe (definately not any of ours!!). The hotel manager appeared drunk on a few occasions!!! He was slurring his speech when we checked out on July 5,the decor was very old and tacky.

The ocean view was the only good thing about this place. I would not stay there again and would opt for another spot. The cottages might be much nicer. Sadly, we were not given the opportunity to find out.

We happened upon this property while taking a day trip. They had a cabin available that they gave us for a good price. Once we saw it we fell in love with it and decided to stay. The grounds are very private and eclectic with all sorts of statues and sculptures popping out everywhere. Lush greenery and flowers grow lush and abundant. It was very interesting and very artsy feeling. We also had brunch at their restaurant. The food was outstanding and again the decor was very eclectic. The staff was super friendly and personable and very interesting to talk to. If you find yourself in Birch Bay I would highly recommend this place. I personally wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. It was a true hidden oasis and I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask to see it first as they are all very different. I loved the privacy of room #6 where we stayed
